It was an...

It was an itsy bitsy, teenie weenie, yellow polka dot baby onsie... 

Two, three, four, stick around I'll tell ya more.

Oh my gosh, I think I may be dating myself here. Papa R and his pals used to listen to that song (Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini by Brian Hyland) on vinyl when I was a wee little one. But I digress...

Stash busting 2013:  Project # 21

Fabric Used:      1 metre of cotton knit fabric

Pattern Used:     McCall's 7367, an old stand-by, circa 1994.

Snaps Used:       1 snap

Ribbon Used:    1 metre of yellow ribbon. (Actually, I didn't stash-bust any ribbon. I picked up the yellow ribbon for this project).

I actually picked up this fabric last year for a tee-shirt that is still waiting to be sewn up. This baby onsie is what I managed to make with the left-over fabric. I did have enough yellow fabric for the band pieces but went with a black knit that had a bit more stretch.

So happy to have this one done. Hmmm, what's next? Stay tuned, I haven't decided yet.

Happy Sewing!


  1. So cute! I'm eager to see whats next....

  2. I love this pattern! I made this in an ivory knit for my babies to wear the day they came home from the hospital. I love the polka dots on this one!!
